It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time to meet another funny human, whose jokes are good and will help make your day go by a lil faster, which is all we can hope for sometimes, you know? This week’s human is Emily Maya Mills, a Los Angeles-based standup/actor/writer who you may recognize from Parks and Recreation, Key and Peele, or Pete Holmes’ You Made It Weird podcast.
Let’s get to know her standup a little by watching this video of her standup recorded live in Los Angeles!
Here’s a clip of Emily from a show called Top Story! Weekly, which features comics riffing on the news, which is a show concept unusual in its straightforwardness, when you think about it, you know?
Twitter is a modern day tool people used by comics and writers to test out, or “workshop” their material in short, bite-sized doses, or “tweets.” Emily is one such Twitter user, let’s take a look at some of her quality tweets.

Emily’s sketch comedy group, Birds of Prey, co-star in this historical comedy short featuring Reno 911!’s Thomas Lennon! Fun stuff.
Before we go, let’s watch a short video starring Emily called Marnie Jameson: Celebrity Star, where we go deep inside the psyche of a pageant mom for three and a half minutes.
